Live Succulent Jewelry Line by Lizzie&Lace
Kirstin from florist shop Lizzie & Lace:
I’m as mesmerized by floral crowns as the rest of you, trust me. They’re ethereal and fresh – something made especially for each bride. But, being a floral artist, I found myself wondering, “Why not do a crown with succulents instead of flowers?” I wanted to take the idea into a new and artistic realm.
I started experimenting, both with succulents alone and a mix with flowers. The combinations and arrangements are endless, which leaves even more room for creativity. So I pushed myself to make the crowns bigger, with a larger volume of plants. Then came succulent jewelry.
I love the colors of succulents – their delicate nature and shapes. Once I started, I couldn’t stop.
For my first live succulent jewelry line, I set out to create a unique collection that channeled artistic whimsy and romance, but with dramatic effect. I wanted something for earthy, bohemian brides and bridesmaids that is distinctive, yet practical. This living jewelry had to be as beautiful as it was wearable.
With a variety of pieces available, bridesmaids can mix and match pieces to create just the right look for each wedding party. There’s enough colors and shapes to appeal to everyone and to mesh with other jewelry. The best part is that you can trade the typical bouquet and slip on an elegant succulent bracelet instead. It’s light, easy to wear, and a statement piece that won’t soon be forgotten.
